Obamacare Injunction Sought in Va. Court Monday

The challenge to the constitutionality of Obamacare is being heard in a Virginia court today, for the first time being argued on its merits. 

Virginia’s lawsuit challenges the constitutionality of the federal health care act and its insurance mandate.

Arguments will be heard today in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia in Richmond. 

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is also asking for an injunction against the entire health care act if the judge finds that the individual mandate is unconstitutional. 

The attorney general’s office argued in court on July 1 against the federal government’s motion to dismiss the suit and won that round when the judge returned his decision on August 2 saying that the case could go forward. 

The hearing today, Monday, October 18, begins at 9:00 am and will allow up to one hour for each side to argue case for and against the constitutionality of the health care law.

The case is Commonwealth of Virginia v. Kathleen Sebelius.  The judge is Henry E. Hudson.  Arguing on behalf of the Commonwealth of Virginia is E. Duncan Getchell, Jr., Solicitor General of Virginia.  Attorney General Cuccinelli will be in court for the arguments.
